First results Author van Dijke, J.P. TNO Industrie en Techniek Publication year 2010 Abstract CityMobil is an Integrated Project in the 6th Framework Programme of the European Union. The project addresses the topic "Advanced Road transport for the Urban Environment." The project started in May 2006 and will run for 5.5 years until the end of 2011. The project is carried out by a group of 29 partners led by TNO, the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research. Goal of the project is to make significant steps forward towards realisation of automated traffic solutions for the city of tomorrow. The total project budget is roughly 40 million Euros, of which 11 million is funded by the EU. This paper describes the first results, about four years after the start of the project. About half of the work in CityMobil consists of demonstration activities. One of three large scale demonstrators that are supported by the project has started operation already in 2008. The second one will start in the autumn of 2010 and the third one will follow later in 2011. These demonstrators, located at Heathrow Airport (UK), Castellón (ES) and Rome (IT) are not temporary events, but real implementations of automated transport systems. After the project is finished, the demonstrators will be continued and further extended. Smaller demonstrations will be held in the cities of La Rochelle (FR) and Lausanne (CH) in the first half of 2011. Five showcases of advanced transport systems have been held in 5 European urban centres of different size and identity: Daventry (UK), La Rochelle (FR), Vantaa (FI), Trondheim (NO) and Orta San Giulio (IT). Finally two studies into aspects of the implementation of an advanced transport system in specific city environments are part of the CityMobil project: The city study in Uppsala (SW) is completed and the study in Sophia Antipolis (FR) is on its way. The R&D program, focusing on barriers that have to be removed to enable the large scale implementation of advanced transport systems in European cities is nearly completed and most of the results have been published on the CityMobil website (www.citymobil-project.eu).
